Prince Harry 'will target Camilla' in upcoming memoir, ex-butler claims

Ex-royal butler Paul Burrell has claimed Prince Harry may have his stepmother Camilla Parker Bowles 'in his sights' in his memoir.

The royal expert said he believes the Duke of Sussex may 'reveal any Camilla secrets' in the tell-all, that is set to be released in 2022.

"The publisher, Penguin, will no doubt want their money's worth in this book deal. That means they won't want vagueness – they'll want names and specifics," Princess Diana's former butler told Closer magazine.

Paul claimed Harry will 'no doubt' go into depth about his feelings and events after his mother's tragic death, but added his father Prince Charles would be 'livid' if Harry attacked his stepmother.

"I suspect Camilla will be in his sights, so I'd say Harry's set to reveal any Camilla secrets," he added.

"He's already said he enjoys The Crown, which painted Camilla as the 'wicked stepmother' in a way."


Prince Harry announced his memoir in July, promising it would be a “first-hand” account of his life so far.

In a statement, the 36-year-old said: “I'm writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become."

Royal insiders recently claimed even the Queen had reportedly "sought legal advice" before the release of Harry's book.

According to The Sun, both libel and privacy experts have been consulted by the royal legal team in preparation for more "hurtful attacks" against the monarchy

"The feeling, coming right from the top, is that enough is enough," a source told the publication.

Another royal expert recently predicted Prince William will be the most impacted by whatever Harry has to say.

Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, has said the Duke of Sussex’s book could damage the reputation of the monarchy by the time his older brother takes the throne.

“William is probably the one that will come out of this worst of all because there is a row between William and Harry and basically if Harry says things that are inappropriate about the monarchy, that is William’s future,” Ingrid claimed to the Express.

“It’s not Harry’s future, he is out of it now, but it is William’s future.”
